Baby-Toddler–Dads are the focus in this tool-themed tale. The text celebrates a child’s love for the father figure in their life, and how fathers are always there when we need them, teaching us to be brave and kind. Each page features a pun that shares how fathers excel in the role, with highlighted words helping readers to build vocabulary, such as balance, pinch, and drill. “When it comes to being a Dad—you nailed it. You’re the best! The greatest I ever saw, a cut above the rest!” Brightly colored illustrations featuring anthropomorphic tools, including a hammer, levels, and measuring tapes, add charm to the text.
VERDICT A good fit for new dads and a fun bedtime read aloud to share on Father’s Day.
